My Mailbox

The letter was addressed to “Occupant,” which I suppose is about as personal as it is possible for Canada Post, our national postal service, to get. Though it isn’t as if they don’t know who lives here. I had already seen the news report before receiving the letter, so I knew what to expect. Sometime […]

Tying Up Some Loose Ends

I figured an update on a couple of earlier posts might be in order. As you may recall, Canada Post introduced community mailboxes to my neighbourhood just after last October’s federal election. This arguably was the first broken election promise for the new Liberal government, which had promised a moratorium on ending home delivery. A […]

When I called yesterday to point out that the lock on my community mailbox was still frozen I was told by the customer service representative that there was nothing more that could […]

Lost Luggage IV – Who Is Mr. Hinds?

The saga of my wife’s lost backpack from her summer vacation continues, as we now attempt to get compensation from Air Transat, compensation that they are legally required to give under the “Montreal Convention” that covers air travel and lost luggage. What should be a simple process isn’t. She filed her claim on return from […]
